Photos: Demolition Underway At Site Where Miami’s Westernmost Skyscraper Is Being Built

Demolition is well underway at the site where Miami’s westernmost skyscraper is being built.

Photos show that landscape architect Raymond Jungle’s former offices are now being demolished in Brickell on the Miami River. A former location of Finnegan’s on the River is also now nearly completely demolished.

The Miami River tower will rise 640 feet above ground, or 645 feet above sea level, making it the only building so far inland in Miami to reach the 600+ foot height.

Developer Chetrit Group recently obtained a $310 million construction loan and filed a Notice of Commencement that construction was underway.

The tower will rise 54 stories.

The first phase now under construction will include 632 apartments and retail space, along with a public promenade on the river.

Eventually, the project will have 1,678 residential units, 330 hotel rooms, 196,882-square-feet of retail space, and 98,040-square-feet of office space.

The real question is why would anyone want to be in West Kendall to begin with?

At least they built the I-95 overpass sufficiently elevated like they are doing now by the Arsht Center.

I always thought this stretch of elevated I-95 would be a prime candidate for a tunnel project. Would nicely connect the Downtown and Brickell areas to areas West. Understandably, there is not an appetite to take on such a tax bill. I wonder if Elon’s boring company could deliver a solution.

You should really take your homophobia somewhere else. Back to the 20th century maybe.

It’s amazing what goes on in the real estate market in Miami and the surrounding area and TNM managed to register that this afternoon. There are three reports on huge complexes: the Sunny Isles twin towers, the 2 Southside Park towers on Brickell and now this fantastic complex with the three Miami River towers.

I wish this project had more realistic renderings to visualize what the final product will look like. It’s hard to tell how when it looks so animated and doesn’t incorporate the surroundings of other towers in the Brickell skyline.
